Admired indeed, but that’s not all of it. What I feel gone is positive memories I had with friends listening enjoying and debating Neil.it’s like losing someone we really admired for their integrity and being a gentleman
I never read anything who ever had a bad thing to say about him
so rare in a celebrity
Particularly one who never wanted the limelight
This is where I fall. I liked Rush tunes and have seen them a few times but wasn't a rabid Rush fan like many. I djd, however,respect Neil Peart as a musician and a human being that dealt with more than his share of tragedy and did it with more poise than I think I would have. I didnt think it would affect me Much when I heard but things still seem off for lack of a better term. It's sad the world lost a good guy and music lost a great.I’ll start by saying I was never a fan of Rush, and although I had respect for his drumming I never got the drum god thing. But, after reading so much about him this past week I have a newfound interest and new level of respect for him!
He was an awesome human being!
